"Clinical waste"

About: Heartlands Hospital

Anything else?

Ward 30. Not impressed at their procedures regarding clinical waste. Seriously gloves and used plastic syringes in bins in patients rooms that are marked for general waste and have black bin bags in not orange bags.This is not good enough. If we did this where I work we would be in serious trouble especially if cqc were to find out. If hospitals can't get basics right then there is no wonder things like mrsa are on the increase
